Parking Lot Gates & Entrance Gate Security Systems

There are other uses for parking lot gates and pedestrian entrance security systems other than just blocking access. A property manager might install a gate at the entrance of their apartments to limit who has access to the property and protect their residents, while an office company would put up barriers in order to regulate who comes and goes from the building. Both of these methods protect people from suffering personal injury or theft.
A few more reasons to install a parking lot barrier gate, entrance gate, or pedestrian gate:
  • Ensure the privacy of residents within a community.
  • Parking lot entry and exit control systems as well as entry gates can increase property values by decreasing the risk of property damage.
  • A parking barrier gate can protect vehicles from vandalism or theft.
  • Decreases liability of a business owner or residential building owner when they have security systems and parking gates, such as a parking garage gate.
  • Security features make a property more appealing as it makes people feel more secure.

These measures help protect both people AND property inside these spaces – all while keeping out unwanted intruders.

The most popular type of parking lot gate features a wooden or metal parking gate arm measuring 4” wide that raises and closes across the entranceway. This type of entry system is typically used for traffic control purposes and is commonly used for entry to paid parking lots and highway toll booths. A barrier arm gate works well for paid parking lots and is a good choice for airports or as a means of controlling traffic spikes; however, this system may not be the one to choose if you are looking for vehicle access control.

Pivot Style Parking Lot Gates

For parking controls that protect an entire lot from unwanted access, you may be interested in the pivot style gate. This parking lot gate is better at securing entrance to a lot or parking garage because the gate covers the entire entrance and is a full gate rather than just a swing arm.

Pivot style parking lot gates and security systems feature a full parking gate that opens and closes across the parking lot entrance and can include a keypad entry, card reader, sensor system, or other gate openers. The parking security gates are up to 7’ tall and are a continuation of the fence line. This entry security system provides a much higher level of security for the inside of the fenced area and is commonly seen guarding the entrance to residential properties. We have more than 20 different styles to enhance aesthetic integration with the rest of the property.

Make Security a Priority

Even with the added measures of a parking lot gate or similar entrance and exit control, additional security measures can help increase the safety of your residents and their property. Cameras are used to view parking lot security gates, providing information on possible vandalism or even attempts at breaches. Card Access Control is used to allow authorized employees and vehicles, like delivery trucks, unattended access through the gates. If visitors are allowed entry, most places will have an Intercom or Down Ringer Phone at the gate. With the use of the communications units, remote guards or barrier gate operators will be able to remotely open the gate to allow door entry or exit as needed.

When you are ready to secure your residential property, parking lot, parking garage, or business, we can get you the durable gate solution that matches your needs.
